2021 Dust Control Program

9 June 2021

Starland County will have dust control available for local roads in 2021. The County will supply dust suppression for a minimum distance of 200 meters (656 feet) in front of a residence, industrial or commercial site on a municipal road allowance upon request. The applicant will be responsible for the cost of the dust abatement product and the application equipment. Application rates and material costs will be determined annually on a full cost recovery basis. In addition, application of the product is only available upon receiving sufficient orders to warrant ordering a truck load of product and is also subject to availability. The County will provide a quote for this application dependent upon the length and width of roadway to receive abatement as well as the type of dust suppressant chosen.

Two products are being offered:

  1. MG30 Dust Suppressant is a calcium chloride, magnesium hydroxide solution.
    An example of the average calculation for this product would be $1,853.80 + GST
    (This cost is for a 200 meter stretch on a 9 meter wide road surface)
  2. CleanTRACK uses a proprietary, non-toxic chemical formulation.
    An example of the average calculation for this product would be $3,490.00 + GST
    (This cost is for a 200 meter stretch on a 9 meter wide road surface)

All interested customers should contact the Starland County Public Works Office for a quote and then must submit an application for dust control with payment in full as per the quote. 

Dust control can be requested by the ratepayer up to and including June 30, 2021.

All products are intended to provide dust control for one season only. The municipality reserves the right to blade any stretch of road that has the dust control product applied if poor road conditions warrant it. The Public Works Supervisor will contact the customer prior to any blading being done on the dust controlled area.
